The documentary 40 Weeks follows women of varying ages, ethnicities, marital situations, and economic backgrounds as they move from learning that they are pregnant to birth.

“The nine-month project workflow included shooting in RED with roughly 50 TB of raw footage and having three editors on three workstations editing simultaneously with Adobe Premiere Pro,” says filmmaker Christopher Henze. “These demands required a flexible storage solution that could sustain very high performance with rock-solid reliability since we couldn’t ask the women going through their pregnancies to reset. We chose JMR’s BlueStor storage server and SilverStor ATX workstation solutions because of the company’s reputation for building very dependable and affordable products that offer great value--and bottom line, after nine months, the system just works and I couldn’t be happier.”


Bluebell Triple Stack Silhouette

Bluebell Opticom at the 2018 NAB Show

At the 2018 NAB Show, Bluebell will demonstrate the Silhouette line of rugged, deployable, high-density, mixed-technology media converters. The heart of the Silhouette power-insertion product family for robotic cameras in remote production scenarios, the Silhouette is a fully integrated 4K UHD robotic head system that works with SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, and 4K UHD cameras to provide power and control to the camera head and fibre optic connectivity for the remote-control panel. As a result, operators no longer need to rely on stadium power. The customizable Silhouette comes in three sizes and can accommodate any combination of 4K HDR, quad 3G-SDI, trilevel sync, GigE, serial data control, communications, IFB, and multichannel audio signals. Customers can choose to get power from a 12V DC supply, a V-Mount battery, a hybrid cable, or a combination of the three. Introduced at IBC2017, Silhouette units are deployed all over the world in sports, theatre, and music venues.
